By installing talking garbage cans that dish out racy audio messages after being fed trash, authorities are hoping for an increase in rubbish being deposited.
Pedestrians that drop trash into one of two bins on the city’s Davidshallsbron bridge are rewarded with extremely positive feedback from a sultry female voice, who offers a range of responses.
“Oh, right there, yes!”, “Come back soon and do that again!” and “Mmm, a bit more to the left next time,” feature among the programmed messages.
During the pandemic, they thanked depositors for adhering to social distancing regulations, but a new era calls for a new method, the city road department’s section chief believes.
“So please go ahead and feed the bins with more rubbish…yes, just like that.”
